the region of homegrown organic change. president obama made no promise of unseating the assad regime. i think the u.s. is rightly out of the regime change business. and i do think that in order for syria to have a sustainable, peaceful transition, it has to be one that comes from within. and here i to put more responsibility, quite frankly, on the opposition to do a much better job of attracting minorities, christians, druze, alawites, kurds, and to coalesce around a quote vision of a post-assad city in which these minorities feel not only that they would survive, but that they would thrive. >> john, if i can ask for questions requested, and anybody can try to answer them. how would a variety of possible future serial look at separatists and other extremist anti-statist quote groups attempted to and succeeded in dividing syria into multiple political entities, if not new countries? how, given these kinds of possible scenarios might one rank these yet to be achieved or yet to be attempted alternative, alternate maps of syria or of probability? number three, how, if at all, does israel st

's starting up again with the romney campaign heading to new states. and new polls showing president obama holding slim leads in the key battlegrounds. it's "your voice, your vote." and abc's jonathan karl is in florida. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. that storm did not delay this campaign for long. joe biden and mitt romney will be campaigning hard down here in florida today. the storm has forced the president to cancel several campaign events. but it has also given him a chance to show some presidential leadership. >> my message to the federal government, no bureaucracy, no red tape. get resources where they're needed. >> reporter: and later today, he'll get a firsthand look at the damage on the new jersey shore, with none other than the state's republican governor, chris christie. christie is a die-hard romney supporter. but he's had nothing but praise for the president's handling of the storm, which he says is all that really counts right now. >> i don't give a damn about election day. it doesn't matter a lick to me at the moment. i've got much bigger fish to fry

that, public-private partnerships. something the obama administration is in talking about for a number of years. a small amount of seed money from the government that brings in a lot of private money sitting on the sidelines, that's looking for investments in things that pay longer-term. toll roads is a classic example. so we do far less than we could do an infrastructure as we don't have appropriate structures. you do see interesting things happening. i mean, new york is set up an infrastructure bank to do with the state level was not at the federal level. chicago, mayor emmanuel announced the launch of a $7 infrastructure project in chicago, again to bring private money sitting on the sidelines. so that's a very good example of what can be done. the u.s. is losing ground on a lot of key components of infrastructure and for understandable reasons. governments don't have an awful lot of money. so if you're waiting on the line on government appropriations in government borrowing for infrastructure investments, that is not the best way forward in the current environment. so that's a very

for president obama. you've certainly declared. i wanted to know is this the kind of october and november now surprise that can benefit a sitting president more than a candidate? >> well, who knows. i mean, you know, there's been -- i've heard it argued both ways, jim. that, you know, the people who are lower income are going to have more difficulty getting to the polls. other people have indicated that -- that it will favor the sitting president. certainly i hope that's the case. but i can't predict that. >> jim, i wonder, though, we're getting some fresh polling out of ohio where the president once not long ago, jim, had a five-point lead. it looks very even right now. people still discussing a participation gap, an enthusiasm gap versus his first election in 2008. how do you -- how worried are you about that? >> well, obviously concerned. i would expect that in michigan and ohio where the car industry has been reenergized, that that would have a significant impact. we certainly notice that our business in those two states is pretty good. so that was a help for us relative to the economy. >
